Summer is here, and that means it’s also the season for summer products. If you’re like us, you store your fruit. Right now that means peaches.

However, once you get your peaches home, should you store them in the fridge to extend their shelf life? There is a trick to preserving this fruit.

When you buy your peaches, they are not in the refrigerated section. Keeping them outside allows the produce to continue to ripen, and it’s the same once you bring them home.

If you plan to eat the fruit for a few days, buy some that haven’t fully matured yet. Thus, they can continue to ripen and will be perfect at tea time.

When does the refrigerator come into play? Once your peaches reach the maturity you want, that’s when you need to put them in the fridge. The cold environment slows down the ripening process. You can keep them in their peak state for a bit longer and have more time to consume them.

Keep in mind, however, that when peaches are in the refrigerator, some of the moisture may be squeezed out. It might affect the texture, but they’ll be fine for a day or two longer.

If you like buying fruit in bulk, yes, you might want to put those ripe peaches in your fridge. When they get a little overripe, don’t worry. There are many peach recipes you can use them in.
